For many years, particularly when our children where still at home we ate Sloppy Joe's from the Manwich can. It is was quick, relatively cheap and easy...today I tend to steer away from to many canned goods and take the 'homemade' approach. The result being far more flavorful and satisfying, while still being quick and easy.
1 lb. ground chuck
1 medium onion, chopped
1/2 cup ketchup
3 Tbsp. sweet pickle relish
1 Tbsp. light brown sugar
1 Tbsp. prepared mustard
1/4 tsp. each salt and pepper
Brown ground chuck and onion in a large nonstick skillet until meat crumbles, drain. Stir in ketchup and remaining ingredients, bring to a boil. Cover, reduce heat and simmer 5 minutes. Serve with toasted bread or buns, coleslaw and Honey Baked Onions....you'll be so very very glad that you did!
